Following their previous update, Sony has now released a PlayStation Vita System Software 3.61 Update (also for PS TV) which blocks the HENkaku exploit on PS Vita.

One can't help but ponder the question... is it better to keep such things private as they will inevitably be patched by Sony once made public, or don't worry about them being blocked and enjoy the e-fame while you can? :unsure:

Scene developers share mixed views on this debate, as there are pros and cons to both sides but typically it's the decision of whoever found the exploit whether to share it or not. ;)

According to Sony's official site, the changes are simply as follows:

PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV System Software Update 3.61

Main features in system software update version 3.61:
  • This system software update improves system performance.
Update: To quote from yifanlu on PS Vita games that require 3.61 to be spoofed:

Someone who is experiencing this problem, try running that on app.db and see if it bypasses it.
UPDATE "tbl_appinfo" SET val = '00.000' WHERE key = 1203824812;
Cursory investigation seem to show that it's failing lv0 version checks. If true, that means we can't spoof fw until either a lv0 hack or a hack on newer fw.

Very likely to be lv0 checks. At offset 0x1B0 of the control info of the SELF, there is a min system version field. This is signed along with the rest of the SELF and is likely checked by lv0.

That means we won't be able to bypass it anytime soon (it would require a lv0 hack). It is also possible that Sony added new keys to 3.61, which means that lv0 must be hacked in 3.61 to get them.
